Since the completion of a building condition survey of Widrick Lodge in 2008, the NY FFA Foundation Board of Directors has been working on plans to build a new kitchen and dining hall at the Oswegatchie Educational Center. After many years of studies, planning, and research, the FFA was awarded a State and Municipalities grant from New York totaling $2,000,000. Today we know the project cost is estimated to be $3.3 million dollars. Starting in April of 2018 we began a campaign to raise $1.3 million dollars. As of January 2019 we have reached the $750,000 mark in pledges and funds raised. Today we are seeking the support of our Alumni, private foundations, and corporate sponsors to help us close the final gap which will allow us to build the project we need.
